Lenovo builds Amazon Alexa into its Smart Tab M10 and P10 Android tablets

Drop either tablet into an included Smart Dock and you have an Amazon Alexa display.

Lenovo’s Smart Tab M10 and P10 are ready to branch out from their humdrum Android tablet lives. Maybe you’ll employ them a few hours a day as a tablet. But if you pair them with their included Smart Docks, they become Amazon Alexa-powered smart displays, expanding their usefulness around your home.

The Smart Dock also acts as an auxiliary speaker for its connected tablet, offering better sound than you’d get from the tablet alone. The tablets themselves have front-firing speakers with Dolby Atmos technology, but they can’t compete with a fuller-fledged speaker such as the Smart Dock provides. 

Lenovo Smart Tab prices, features and specs

Announced at CES and due to ship in January, the M10 and P10 will cost $200 and $250, respectively. The more expensive P10 is actually a little smaller in size compared to the M10, but it offers some better specs: a larger battery, plus a glass back for a classier look.

Here are the details we know for both:

The Smart Dock, the same for either unit, offers two 3-watt speakers and three far-field microphones. It measures 2.57 x 11.16 x 1.96 inches and weighs 1.76 pounds. The tablet nests easily into the dock using pogo pins. The Smart Dock also acts as a charger for the tablet.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
